We held the monthly FT match at Arlington Sportsmanís Club yesterday in almost summertime conditions. The weather was overcast, very humid, with South winds 5-15mph, and a high of 88F. We had only 12 shooters on this Memorial Day weekend for the 28 target/56 shot rifle match. I changed the format this month as a test for the upcoming Republic of Texas Grand Prix match on September 23&24 by having only 2 targets per lane and using all of our 3D archery lanes in the woods. I intended to reduce the Troyer rating this month, but when accounting for wind and darkness, the average Troyer was 30 (SD 6.2). It turns out that the toughest shot was from our 12 foot elevated tower that places the shooters up in the wind; consequently I got the most complaints about the difficulty of that lane. Only 5 shooters knocked over the close target, and only 1(!) knocked over the far one. This is the only place we have that allows shooting down at any of the North Texas clubs. I think Iíll definitely keep the standing tower lane for the RoT!! (Evil MD laughÖ) I continued my strategy of placing targets in natural surroundings, so I placed a few of the targets near the edges of the lanes and in places that forced shooters to shoot through openings in the underbrush. Early arrivals David Carlile and Terry Vanpool helped run the strings and setup the sight-in lanes. Thanks for the help guys. The only target issue was the tree-mounted gray koala that was DIFFICULT to reset, but fell properly when hit. After Terry and I educated the guys how to pull the string properly so it would reset, there were no other complaints. Noted for maintenance before the next match. BTW, I moved the koala for this match, but didnít paint him hot pink as was suggested by some. I thoroughly enjoyed shooting my new-to-me Whiscombe JW50, even though I switched pellets the day before away from my tried and true H&N FTTís. With the new pellets I had to hold 1 mil-dot high for all targets since I didnít have time to re-zero or make a new dope chart, but they grouped MUCH better at 45+ yards. Woohoo! At the end of the match, we turned in our scorecards and tallied the scores. Paul Walker and Terry Vanpool posted the match high score of 50/56 in Hunter PCP; Paul was announced the winner after a brief discussion between the two of them. First place in Hunter Piston was David Carlile with 35/56, and first place in WFTF was Jeff Cloud with 39/56 (tie breaker based on forced position lanes). View the full list of all competitorsí scores and equipment below. Thanks to everyone who helped takedown the course after the match. The ASC club will host our next regular monthly match on June 24. Come on out and bring some friends!

Someone needs to remind Jentry that .22 is supposed to be a handicap in this game and springers are supposed to shoot half the score of PCPs. ;)
